Summoning the 'fiddle horde'
Melissa Stolasz loves the fiddle.

She took the instrument up as an adult and has become a kind of Johnny Appleseed of fiddle-playing since, launching programs to teach fiddle to young people and older folks alike. Now she's getting set to launch a fiddle class through Sisters Park & Recreation District - and she's looking for fiddles to help the class get its start.

New exhibit explores work of 'desert artist'
In a small ghost town nestled at the edge of the vast landscape of Oregon's Alvord Desert near Steens Mountain, artist John Simpkins has turned a one-room schoolhouse into a working studio. For the past seven years, Simpkins, with only his dog for company, has lived and painted in the schoolhouse, one of the few buildings still standing in Andrews - a town that was home to a mere 150 people during its prime at the turn of the century.

Simpkins moved there after living and creating for many years in Sisters.

Mike Biggers 'Ain't Makin' This Up' with CD
For Mike Biggers, music is a passion. The singer-songwriter and ace guitarist plays locally with The Anvil Blasters and with Dry Canyon Stampede, as well as serving up the occasional solo gig. Amid that busy gigging schedule, he's been recording his second CD, "Ain't Makin' This Up," which he released last week.

The title cut offers a telling glimpse of Biggers' influences and songwriting approach. The song is a compendium of ironies that are just too perfect to make up, delivered with Biggers' trademark wry humor - couched in an arrangement that calls up classic Southern Rock.
